Steve Breaston has knee surgery

Posted by Andy Benoit

The last thing the Cardinals need is one of their starting receivers going under the knife. Tuesday, that’s what they got. XTRA Sports 910's Mike Jurecki reports that Steve Breaston had surgery on a torn meniscus in his knee. The speedy No. 2 wideout is expected to miss at least a couple of weeks. S. Breaston

Breaston currently leads the Cardinals with 14 receptions and 183 yards. His absence means Derek Anderson will have to find another receiver to miss throws to while defenses double-team – and, now, perhaps, triple-team – Larry Fitzgerald.

Early Doucet would be the obvious choice, but he’s still out with a sports hernia. Anquan Boldin is a Pro Bowler, but, sadly, the Cards never paid what he was worth and instead dealt him to Baltimore back in spring. (Sorry Cardinals fans, maybe that little jab wasn’t necessary…)

Undrafted rookies Stephen Williams and Max Komar are expected to get a crack (they’re the only receivers on the roster). Also, third-round pick Andre Roberts could warrant a look. Roberts, primarily a punt returner, has struggled early on, but the opportunity could be thrust on him.

In all likelihood, the Cardinals will sign a free agent. (Kevin Curtis is available. Too bad Brandon Stokley just joined the Seahawks.)

Hot Routes 9.16.10: Video killed the NFL star

  • We've been discussing how "locker room spies" are beneficial to their new team (although Eric Winston told me he doesn't think Kyle Shanahan will make that big of a difference) and the Giants have the best one of all in Jim Sorgi, who was Peyton Manning's backup for quite a while. (Of course they also have, you know, his brother Eli Manning, but he doesn't know the Colts offense.) Sorgi, however, doesn't think it'll matter. Because it's Peyton.
  • One of Brian Bassett's readers noticed that Kris Jenkins had a tough time making it up the stairs at Cortland. Provided this account is true, well, it kind of makes it seem like he shouldn't have even been on the field for Week 1. Or we should have seen another injury coming.
